Silverthorne Elementary embraces the digital age | SummitDaily.com

Silverthorne Elementary embraces the digital age | SummitDaily.com | ADP Center for Teacher Preparation & Learning Technologies | Scoop.it
Silverthorne Elementary student Cienna Hitt sat on the floor of her fourth-grade classroom Wednesday, immersed in the display of a MacBook.

 

The child was using the laptop, she explained, to create a podcast of her hero, highly decorated World War II veteran Audie Murphy. She wrote a few paragraphs on Murphy, recorded her voice on the computer and added pictures and music. Another student sat nearby, listening to an audiobook of her hero on an iPod Shuffle.

The sight of the two students using gadgets to learn is not that unusual at Silverthorne, which got a boost to its technology stock this year using district grants and some leftover funds from last school year. Overall, they got about 30 iPads, 20 iPad touches, 35 shuffles, 150 mini-laptops, projectors, document cameras and MacBooks for every teacher.

Incursion not excursion in the interactive age

Incursion not excursion in the interactive age | ADP Center for Teacher Preparation & Learning Technologies | Scoop.it
Reading Justin Bieber's tweets or Kim Kardashian's blog (''This weekend I spent Saturday shopping with my mom!''), you could be forgiven for thinking that digital technology is dumbing us down.
Yes, the digital pool has a shallow end but there's a deep end, too. And nowhere is this more evident than in the arts, as organisations including the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Opera House, Musica Viva and Bell Shakespeare start to use interactive whiteboards and video conferencing to spread the cultural word in classrooms.
